  1. Promotes a healthy nervous system. Broccoli is a good source of vitamin B2 (riboflavin), which can help calm and nourish nerve fibers.
  2. Supports bone health. Broccoli is a good source of vitamin K and calcium - both of which help keep bones strong and reduce the risk of osteoporosis.
  3. Can improve energy, through its high levels of vitamin C.

The nutrients in broccoli may also help protect against cancer, heart disease, cataracts and birth defects, while promoting a strong immune system and supporting optimal gastrointestinal function. One of the healthiest ways to prepare broccoli is to lightly steam it, which can help to retain the nutritional components better than other methods, such as boiling.

This message brought to you by Dr. Andrew Weil!! We start our broccoli inside our Grow Y'own beds in March. By end of April, beginning of May, you can transplant them outside and get a 2 month jump on the season. Same with cauliflower, brussel sprouts, cabbage. Why not be eating these vegies when others are just getting buds?!?!?
